Moving on to the next level

When I started my blogging journey I never expected it to become such an integral part of my life. This was the first time I actually invested a lot of time and effort into blogging before this it was just a casual affair. I blogged about gadgets, technology and even internet which were actually more related to the subjects which I studied in my college but those blogs never gave me a feeling of attachment.

With this blog when I actually started pouring down my heart and thoughts suddenly I felt a connect which I never felt before. Surprisingly, it was just not the blog which I felt connected to but also the fellow bloggers who kept me motivated with their wonderful feedback. I felt I belong this community and slowly I have seen myself grow as a person through this blog.

I have become more open to other ideas and feel that I’m more receptive to other views. I have also seen an amazing change in my acceptance of my own feelings which earlier I used to ignore but most importantly my power to express myself has improved many folds which has played a pivotal role in improving my own life.

Now, I can actually observe that the whole “processing the life” initiative is actually working for me and paying me more dividends. Please do share how you experience of blogging has been and has it changed something in you ? If you want you can also share your feelings about my blog.

In last two months my frequency of posts has decreased that is because of my “thesis” which occupied most of my free time. Further my work didn’t allow me take a single minute off. I would thank all of you for your support.

THE BIG MOVING ON NEWS

Yes, I have decided to move my blog from wordpress.com to a self hosted site and  most probably I would be keeping the design and look almost same. This will allow me more flexibility and power in the design part. The shift will also allow me to bring some changes to my blog which I wanted for hosting my “Happy Post Challenge”. I will be coming back with that challenge and in next few days I will be giving you the next update on the challenge.

STAY CONNECTED

I would request you to join me in the social networks so that even with all change we could stay connected. Don’t worry I follow back ;) :) Keep blogging.

      I can totally understand why you would have done that. The posts are a part of our life and I could understand how tough it would have been. Thanks for your valuable feedback :)

  5. The blog and its posts become an integral part of life …it’s like rearing a child and seeing her/him grow day by day…Best of luck :-)

    • Gaurab says:

      That’s true. Sometimes I feel it has life of its own and nowadays it is actually the blog which pushes me to write. Thanks for all the support :) : D

    Oh wow, that’s awesome, good luck!

  7. revgerry says:

    Good luck Gaurab. When you move to a self-hosted site, can you somehow bring your blog pages here with you?

    • Gaurab says:

      Thanks for the support. :) I didn’t get the question?

      • revgerry says:

        Thanks for responding.
        The question relates to your content on wordpress.com. Can you somehow transfer it to the blog part of your site when you go to WP.org or is it left as a disconnected orphan?
        thanks,’
        gerry

          I’m shifting my whole blog to wordpress.org. The only reason I’m shifting is because I wasn’t having the required freedom to conduct the blog event and manage my content properly. I will be moving all my content to my self-hosted site. This is a integral part of my life and will be with me. Thank you :) :D

    I’ve just never thought of this before. I used to blog daily in a site called Multiply and I gained some great friends there. Multiply closed and I got lost for a while. I got kicked out of another site for defending my nephew’s viewpoint. He was also in the same site and we both got sick to death of American election blogs and we said so. So I ended up with facebook and got almost no satisfaction from that. I’d found WordPress to be far too complicated before so I decided to give it another try and here I am. I like the quality of people here in WordPress but I do wish the members had to have proper profiles so we could see exactly who we were interacting with. What will be your new blogging site address ?

    • Gaurab says:

      Facebook used to depress me everyday so I left using. It is full of people who just talk superficially. No substance is the words they write. This gives me more expression and as you said the connections are better. I would be keeping the same address and most probably transferring my subscribers. (if everything goes according to plan). Thanks for the support. :) :D

    Something has gone wrong here and I lost the page while posting my comment. Lt me do it again in case.

  10. hungrydai says:

    I have to do this later. There’s a glitch and I can’t post my first comment

    It is strange how blogging becomes such a vital part of life. I have had the same experience. I’m not sure how I will keep up with your activities when you move from WordPress for I keep track of all the blogs I follow in my WordPress Reader. Perhaps you can post a link to your new blog on this blog before you close this one.

    • Gaurab says:

      I will keep the same domain name, if everything goes according to plan and most probably shift the my followers so that you could get the feed in the wordpress reader. :) If there would be any changes then I would definitely post the links. ;) :) Thanks for being a part of my journey :)

  12. Congratulations and good luck! :)

Love to hear from you
